I actually bought this for one track, "Been too long on the road", which I've always liked for its changes of mood and pace, and which, for some reason, is very hard to come by. However, I've always been partial to the lost/unrequited love ballads of David Gates, sung in his high countryish tenor, which are part of my early working years. Mr. Gates might have written some rather nonsensical lyrics in these, but his gift for melody and the arrangements make up for that.
However, like all pop/rock acts, it's not possible to come up with consistently first-rate material, and this CD has its share of pretty dire stuff. It's a pity, because some excellent tracks ("Diary", "Aubrey", "Look what you've done", "Yours for life") could have been put in in place of the dross. At least they included only the only two tracks worth listening to from the final LP "Lost without your love".
Alas, to get all the good stuff of the Bread canon, you need to buy a few CDs and put up with the duplication.
